Thank You for Including Me.
The table is set, dozens of family photos adorn the walls of your dining room. I laugh at the frozen memories of your childhood, you look exactly the same.
Your family files in. You introduce me to each aunt, uncle, cousin and friend as your girlfriend with shining eyes.
As we eat dinner &listen to old family tales I can't help but be sad that my family isn't as close.
I daydream about the family dinners we will have with our children one day.
I engage in the laughter, someday one day.
I kiss you, "thank you for including me."
